Should I Take Generic Viagra on an Empty Stomach?

ED Problems and Generic Viagra Question:

I have been having ed problems for a while.. I recently had got a script of generic viagra from my pharmacy. Tried it once, Can’t say it worked well because I was eating at the time. I’ve been wondering the best option to use or the best option in general. I’ve been purging somewhat for a couple of weeks. Next time I want to try it on a completely empty stomach. Do you think it’ll do its job? Also is anything above 125mg safe?

Thanks, James

DOCTOR ALSAYES ANSWER:

Actually, it is recommended to take the Viagra on an empty stomach or at least two hours after eating the last meal, and 1 hour before the intercourse.
It takes around 30-60 minutes for Viagra to make the effect, but this duration can be affected by food or alcohol.

You should know that eating any meal before you take Viagra would cause it to make the effect more slowly. Also, fatty meals are the enemy of Viagra, they can make it harder for the medicine to reach the bloodstream.
So if you take Viagra right before the sexual activity it won’t work very well, also if you had some wine or just had dinner before taking the Viagra that will make it take more time to work so you see the results later on at night.


Yes, in most cases oral ED medications (like Viagra or Cialis) can solve the issue, but you should start with the minimum dose of Viagra (25 mg), if the effect was not noticeable, then you can try Viagra 50 mg the next time.

I hope this answers your question.
